With reforms like the Quality Education Investment Act -- a program that strengthens lower-performing schools across the state by giving them the resources and support they need. Schools that have made 50 percent higher gains than those not in the program. Schools where minority students and English learners are closing achievement gaps because we are focusing on proven reforms like smaller class sizes, training and collaboration time for teachers, additional counselors and parental involvement.
